Practice on drawing style

(I got messages of failure from Blogspot?)
I'm practicing on drawing style, because I hope to be able to draw Rough Dreams next year.
I was criticized for my drawing style (is the first time in my life I see a critique about a drawing style rather than about a mistake).
Usually I follow critiques about mistakes I do in my drawing, but I can't cnange my style just because not everybody like it. I built my style because I think it can express myself better. Changing style does means that I can't express myself as I want anymore because it doesn't fit with my imagination. I think styles fit with imagination and with what artists want to show through their drawing. Coming back to my usual style was far better to me.

Now I'm practicin on inking and screen toning (But I haven't screentone pictures to show at the moment). I should practice on enviromets too :P

I overworked on this. I must learn to draw backgrounds, but I don't even know how (i try to use shapes etc...)

Fake screenshot

RD as animated serie. It would be nice (but I should think about that when I will finish the comnic, and I can't even draw very well at the moment)
To me an animated serie should have clear and simple drawings. I don't like very much the graphic of cartoons of today, they seems cold. I like the grapic of cartoon from '80s or ealry '90s, or old disney cartoons.

Brian and Olav fighting.
In those days I'm reading a famous comic about boxe: Ashita no Joe. I think it can give me some ideas, because Joe and Dampei are a bit like Brian and Olav, the two protagonists of Rough Dreams.

Harald Næss

And now I study this bastard. Is the character that gave me more trouble because is a negative character from RD. And also, being inspired to Randy Orton doesn't help.

And why now I have to do copy/paste to use Norwegian character on blogger? I set the keyboars in Norwegian and this blog still has the keyboard setted in italian (italian ha s 6 special characters too - they should be 7)

Character sheets: Part 1

I started character sheets for Rough Dreams. They are useful to keep your character consistent. This is Brian Brushes, the protagonist. The character was based on a person I knew, which nick name was 'brush' (here the name) . His body type is based on Kurt Angle's. See also here:

The other character is Olav Sørensen. He is based on the Undertaker, and like him is a red-head.
Is hard to draw his hair.

Oh God

Is hard XD
I just finished to write 'RtYS' and now I have a lot of work to do.
This summer I invented a new story called 'Seal Kid' (but probably I will change the title)
Is a story that has a lot of thematics that appear in RtYS, but the story itself is quite different. Clearly is sci-fi
Now I started the first chapter of SK, and I took back Rough Dreams. Also I need to re-create the character design of RtYS because I have clearer idea about the main characters. Something will change.
Writing is very hard to me because I never liked that very much and is still not my passion, but is necessary. I don't even know how I can do that XD.

I still follow your blog

Just in anonymous way. I like to keep my privacy in what I follow.

(A sketch I did on Nintendo DS, where I find ideas and inspiration)
